"Anti-Inflammatories prescribed for a transplant..."

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

I've had to visit A&E three times in the last year due to ongoing excruciating feet / leg pain.

The service has been fine up until the Nurses I see at the end (following xray) advise me to rest and take anti-inflammatories.

I'm a transplant patient, we're not allowed to take anti-inflammatories.

I find this most worrying, and they ask why not?!

I appreciate not every NHS staff member can know every health issue in depth, but surely this is a fundamental basic piece of knowledge.

Very disappointed, and scared to have anything done at Whipps.
